Craig briefs: Parents can claim lost items at CMS
January 14, 2010
Craig Middle School principal Bill Toovey invites parents of students to look through the lost-and-found to claim their student's items during Saturday's home basketball game.
Toovey said he usually donates lost-and-found items to the Community Budget Center after a period of time, but with the large number of jackets, gloves and other items, he wanted to give parents another chance to claim lost belongings.
The lost-and-found will be located at the south entrance and will be made available starting at 9:15 a.m. at CMS, 915 Yampa Ave.
Parents should bring their student's school identification card so CMS can log claimed items, Toovey said.
Toovey also would like to remind parents and guests to park in the north parking lot for all home basketball games.
